Subject: The Language of Appalachia
What a blessing it is to hear the voice of this beloved man once more. He is the best spokesperson the people of Appalachia could ever have. I was one of the privileged few who came to know him when he visited his home in Kentucky. Visits with Cratis were wonderful and full of knowledge and respect for the people he most admired.
